Grace Dobosz, C-47029 and a video editor, founded the Wild Women Film Collective to spread the word about women in skydiving and other extreme sports. The group officially launched during the Chicks Rock Boogie at Skydive Elsinore in California on October 5. The collective announced its upcoming film festival and debuted its first short-film submission—“Moms in Skydiving” by Sophee Hillyard—at the event.
The Wild Women Film Collective’s 2019 festival will give women a place to share their stories. Film makers must submit their entries online before July 31, 2019, to be considered for prizes in the 2019 competition. “This festival will give badass women in extreme sports a way to tell their own stories,” says Dobosz. “We want to highlight women who have overcome obstacles and empowered themselves to become bigger than they thought they could be.”
In addition to creating the festival, the Wild Women Film Collective offers advice and guidance on both the technical and the creative aspects of making a short film. The collective currently offers access to 15 skydivers with years of music, storyline-writing and multimedia experience who are ready to help contestants create their short films.
